David Brown Automotive set to reveal another retro remake

David Brown Automotive set to reveal another retro remake

First there was the modern-day XK-based Aston Martin DB5. Then there was the reinterpretation of the Mini (based on, er, old Minis). Now, David Brown Automotive is teasing a third car to join its line-up at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.

We don’t know much about it, but David Brown describes it as a ‘high performance grand tourer’, so it’s fair to assume that the firm’s not done a Land Rover Classic with the Defender. And with prices of the Mini starting in the region of £50,000, it’s also fair to assume it won’t be cheap.

“This is something that we’ve been looking forward to doing since launching Speedback GT and I can’t wait to reveal more,” said David Brown, company founder and CEO. “With its unprecedented levels of performance, this vehicle allows the David Brown Automotive brand to appeal to our existing customers, and new customers alike. The car brings yet another exciting opportunity for our company.”

According to the press release, the car will be hand built at David Brown’s Silverstone HQ, “absorbing the location’s famous racing and aeronautical heritage into the car’s high-octane pedigree.”

We’ll see it in the metal at the first day of the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday 6th March, where we’ll be reporting live. In the meantime, the firm’s launched a catchy hashtag should you wish to follow the latest updates on social media: #PrepareForTakeOff.
